Just Us Girls #210 - Die Inlay Technique

JUGS 210 photo JUGS210picA.jpg

This week our technique is brought to us by Vicki, and she has found this fabulous die inlay technique by Jennifer McGuire for us to try this week.  It's a fabulously video, and the added bonus is you get two cards out of doing it :)

I decided to use my Heart Nestabilities and basically mimicked Jennifer's card using a different shape.   It's a great way to use up your card stock strips - that is if you save them like I do LOL!  If you don't have two dies that nest into each other, you can use two different dies.

The rest of the  JUGS team, including our three new DT member's, have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week.    

Have a great weekend!
